Cups and lids provide support, protection, and resistance to tampering.

The different types of material used in the manufacture of cups and lids are plastic, paper and paperboard, metal, foil, and other materials. Vendors in the cups and lids market in the US are continually working toward inventing technologies and developing materials that can prevent contamination of dairy products in cups. The demand for cup and lid packaging is growing because of the increasing popularity of smaller multipacks.

Biodegradable plastics are easily decomposed by microorganisms and are less toxic to the environment than conventional plastics. Biodegradable plastics are made from petrochemicals with biodegradable additives. The adoption of biodegradable materials such as polyvinyl alcohol, polyanhydrides, and polylactic acid by the manufacturers of cups and lids will reduce the market share of conventional plastics over the next few years. In addition, vendors are increasingly adopting biodegradable plastics as a substitute to avoid hefty penalties because of stringent environmental regulations.

According to the report, demand for specialty beverages is increasing and is expected to become a stand-alone product in the market. Many restaurants and food stalls offer beer. For instance, in the US, restaurants such as Starbucks, Burger King, and Sonic serve beer.
